Ever been to Flin Flon Canada? Every two years, I fly out of there on a fishing trip. Spent some time in the bar too. I don't know of a Laughlin City, but I imagine it's like Flin Flon, a little hole-in-the-wall. There, they take a $5 with Lincoln's face on it as quickly as a handful of Loonies for a tip or a beer. Even more so, given the fact that last time I went $1.50 Canadian was worth about $1 US. Hell, same thing happens in Winnepeg when we drive through. It's not out of the realm of imagination that people are filling the tip jar with whatever they have in their pocket, especially if it's US dollars

The bill is clearly Canadian $5 blue, not US currency colour. But US dollars are commonly presented by Americans who visit Canada, so it wouldn't be surprising anyway.

Using the DVD with Step frame mode, 6X zoom clearly shows the Canadian Currency in the jar.

Whoops, sorry, that's no mistake. You say that it's American? Well, it's Canadian. I used to live in Canada--for 7 years, but now I live in the USA-- so I think I know what both currencies look like. Nice try though!

Trust me, thats a Canadian five dollar bill. a) it's blue b)you can see Alexander Mackenzie's face on it, and it would make sense that I know what my own currency looks like.

I'm sure that there could have been an American there, and used his own currency to pay the tip.

It could just be that an American person dropped by at that bar, found a 5 dollar bill and just put that in the jar. It's not illegal or something to give a tip in a diffrent currency. I don't think that this is a slip-up at all

Sure, it wouldn't be unusual to get foreign currency in a tip jar near a country's borders (lord knows I find enough Canadian change in my pockets myself); but the scene takes place in northern Alberta. Whether you really consider it a slip-up or not, it's still a good spotting.

Have you ever emptied or broken into a vending machine? Have you ever noticed how many pesetas are in there? Same case here, mate!

Now, see, it's always good to check the source before I go praising someone for a good eye. I just took another look at that tip jar, and that ain't no U.S. fiver in there. The only bill you can see says "Canada" clearly. Bad slip-up. Bad bad bad. (spank spank)

Well I've seen this happen in Mexico and in Italy. Foreign people leave tips with the currency of their country, specially if it's the dollar, after all it's one of the most important currency, right?
